2 Portsmouth Schools, Buses Treated For Bedbugs

Posted: Updated:

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - Two Portsmouth schools are sealing students' backpacks and coats in plastic following the discovery of bedbugs on two students.
    
A letter sent to parents says the items will be returned to students at the end of each day. The practice began Monday and could continue for a month.
    
Portsmouth schools spokeswoman Nita Mensia-Joseph tells media outlets that I.C. Norcom High School and Lakeview Elementary School were treated for bedbugs as a precaution. Bedbugs weren't found in either school. Two school buses also were treated.
    
She says one bedbug was found on a Lakeview student last Thursday as the child was getting on a school bus.
    
A school nurse at Norcom found the other bedbug last Friday after a student complained of itching.
